6/16 – 6/19 Banff National Park; Alberta Canada

Arrived in Banff National Park, Tunnel Mountain Campground on Thursday 6/16th. Another beautiful drive.

After settling in we went into the town to walk around, grab some drinks and then dinner. It was a really nice town with lots of shops and restaurants and a beautiful view.

On Friday 6/17th, we went on a 27km E-Bike ride then about a 2k hike to the Lower Falls at Johnston Canyon. Weather was overcast but no rain and kept us at a great temperature. It was the first time that Mike and I road e-bikes, it was fantastic going up the hills. I think I need an e-bike for all the hills in Cape Coral. 🤣🤣

The guides were great and the other couple with us was from Dublin, Ireland so you know that I engaged them in plenty of conversation.

Good dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory.

Saturday 6/18th, Mike, Jim and I went up Sulphur Mountain on the Gondola (Anita was under the weather 😢). We then walked a bunch of steps to go even further up the mountain (I thought this was a lot until we got to Sunday). The weather was great, blue skies and sun for the most part and most importantly no rain!!!!!

Good Mexican dinner and then got beaver tails for dessert.
